Newsom goes for the gun gusto

| June 9, 2023

Well, if you thought you had heard it all from Presidential aspirant and California Governor Gavin Newsom, you are wrong.

Newsom is calling for a CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION to amend the 2nd Amendment. And his wish list is exactly what you would expect:

The amendment, Newsom said, would raise the federal minimum age to purchase a firearm from 18 to 21. It would also bar civilian purchases of assault weapons, mandate universal background checks to keep guns out of the hands of potentially dangerous people and institute a “reasonable” waiting period for all purchases, though he didn’t specify a time period.

The governor said the Second Amendment would remain unchanged and that his plan, which was first reported by Politico, would merely add “common sense” safety measures.

Yep, the Second would remain unchanged… kinda like how the 18th (banning alcohol manufacture) remained after the 21st (which repealed the 18th.)

Luckily Newsom faces an uphill battle – 27 states would have to agree to HAVE a Convention, and then 38 states would have to vote to ratify. Talk about herding cats… according to Wiki there have been 11,848 proposals to amend the Constitution – you may note that only 17 have been successful since 1789.

I once had a political science professor who was horrified at the thought of a Constitutional Convention – as he said: “Look at what happened in 1789 when they met to amend the Articles of Confederation, and came up instead with the Constitution. Imagine what the idiots today could enshrine in a new Constitution….no, better to just leave the original in place.”

Gavin Newsome reppin’ the shittiest state in the union with more horsecockery that will never even come close to passing.

Thanks for wasting everyone’s time on the non-issues. Go back to your hot tub of hair gel, you pompous dildo.

Newsom is just looking for headlines. He knows this has no fucking chance of ever happening.

Careful what you wish for- a Constitutional Convention is exactly what a certain group of conservatives want very badly to happen.
I may be among them.

I suspect it will be the only way to get meaningful term limits on Congress

Do you think the Marxists won’t also cheat there?

AW1Ed

They’d sure as hell try. Just have to be smarter than Republicans, a pretty low bar.

The roll-over RINOs would compromise away the bill of rights to make permanent their grift-graft.

I’ve noticed that every time someone wants to amend the Constitution they try to add amendments that control the PEOPLE.
The Constitution puts a set of heavy chains on the GOVERNMENT, and leaves the liberty and freedom of the people largely unmolested, while it stringently guards those freedoms from the tyranny of the small minded people who seek power in government.

The governor said the Second Amendment would remain unchanged…” Except for that whole “shall not be infringed” part. Newsom has to know that it won’t go anywhere. He’s simply trying to score points for a run at the presidency.

I think he means it. Also, his fellow marxoids are going to run with it.

Control of We, The People…not control of the guns. And, again, they would not be wanting to disarm We, The People, if they were not planning on doing things to We, The People that would make We, The People want to shoot the despots.

Come and take it…Bitch! (apologies to female canines)

Nice insult, but it’s an insult to schweinehunds (pig dogs) everywhere.

I would go with Schieskopf instead.

Wow. I’m sure it’s just an algorithm thing, but when I simply type “molon labe” in the TAH comments section and my comment awaits moderation….

Foreign language hangup?

It’s no “đi đi mau,” but it’s better than “ 屌你老母.”

Even if such an unlikely thing were to happen, I still would not obey.
Make me a criminal, I plan on being the best criminal that I can be.

I Didn’t know that anyone could go to a gun shop and buy a Sturmgewehr 44 over the counter. Didn’t know that they are made in the USA although I saw one on the wall at the gunshop/range in semi auto/.22, made to look like the original
Mod 44. (Sturm=the name storm or assault in German)

Is he related to Alfred E Newsom??

Gavin Newsom is a 24K chickenshit politician with apologies to chicken shit which is very useful as fertilizer. He’s pandering once again to the out-of-touch limousine-Lear Jet liberals thinking that he will convert us unwashed Bible-clinging “deplorables” in Red State America like some babbling UC Berzerkely moonbat once regularly brayed here thinking he was going to convert us to members of his brainwashed mob cult.

Most of them don’t actually give a damn if we say “yes” as long as we are incapable of saying “no”.

He is probably using smoke and mirrors to divert attention from his backfired reparations plan.

He royally fucked his party – especially the moderates.

Got a text message from this jack wagon about this! Also get updates from senator-in-name-only chris murphy on the same.

Can’t find my way to text back ‘stop’ for two very realdoubleplusgood reasons:

a)it gives me something to angry about (less-healthy motivation is still motivation!)

2)some open source intel on what they have in store for We is kinda nice, maybe a ‘thank you’ card is in order?

The threshold to enact law or amend our guiding document was meant to be high hurdle as slow-n-steady republics are durable Republics.

Fuck you Gavin Bumscum. What terrible thing are you covering up for today…?

Newsome is California’s version of Texas’ Beto O’Rourke.

Hopefully his run for president will be as short as O’Rourke’s was.
